The table in this chapter:


is incorrectly converted in the mysqld man page

How to repeat:

     man ./man/mysqld.1

and scroll to the chapter "Dynamic System Variables".

Suggested fix:
Fix the conversion script. I don't know whether it's public and where to find it if it is.

Thank you for your bug report. This issue has been addressed in the documentation. The updated documentation will appear on our website shortly, and will be included in the next release of the relevant products.

This is an issue in the DocBook XSL 1.69.1 stylesheets that we
are using. They do not handle <informaltable> elements at all.
For manpage generation, I have upgraded to the 1.70.1
stylesheets, which handle tables.
